Bjoern Friedetzky, known as Rebelproof on The Replica Prop Forum (RPF) boards, has almost completed his Mad Max: Fury Road Immortan Joe costume. He wanted to make it as screen accurate as he could. He said:
This was a long, very long project and I revieved lots of help help in order to get this costumes as canon as possible.
All silver parts here are actually metal, including the medals and small greeblies. This makes the armour very heavy, but it is very solid and robust.
Its not yet 100% finished and needs some adjustments and weathering…
I was especially interested to read how he made the skin boils. He painted them onto a large piece of latex and sewed that onto a long sleeve shirt. That seems much easier than having to attach them directly to skin and reapplying them every time the costume’s worn.
Head to The RPF to see more pictures of the completed costume, including a closer look at the boils.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
